I got the opportunity to drive a friend's 06 MT, S last week. One thing I noticed was the accelerator was very heavy. It seemed like I had to damn near step on the thing to get the X to move. It was very resistant to being pressed. I didn't recall this being the case when I test drove one a few months back. Is this normal with either the MT or the AT? I haven't driven an AT yet.

Not the case on my X. The pedal seems normal and responsive.

However, this is the case when I am in 4-low as the electronic throttle adjusts it's sensitivity.

Well, if releasing the parking brake don't work..... It's fly by wire, you may have slow wires or a glitch in the pedal module. If not all that, maybe a empty plastic soda bottle or a tennis ball got under the pedal.
Let us know.

...actually, it turned out to be a dead body under the pedal. Once the gummy, gooey stuff was removed it was much easier to push!

But seriously, it just must be his truck then. I drove a few other dealer demos that did not feel like that. Wasn't sure if this was the norm, or a fluke.
